Hey, y'all. Lemme shamelessly direct your attention to a great artist and friend of mine.
Red's got an awesome semi-realistic style with a lot of focus on humanoid portraits and scenery. A lot of artists doing similar things have struck me as boring, but I've always admired Red's work. She and her art are both dripping with personality, and the imagination behind each piece really shows. She's also got a fabulous sense of humor (would I dare promote anyone who wasn't as toony at heart as I am?) to match those awesome sketching and painting skills.
Trades and requests for this artist are now open, so go on an' have a look!
I know my page doesn't get much traffic, but I might consider featuring other lesser-known/newer artists from time to time, so if you'd like me to do the same for you or someone you know, drop me a note. Ya know. Building community and meeting new people and discovering things and such. For science!
